We had a brilliant five day break in the Rubia apartment in this very tastefully renovated historic house on the main square in Mombeltran. The owner, Carmen, was very helpful in all of our dealings by email prior to our trip, and Puebla, who looks after the apartments, could not have been more helpful, meeting us at 11o'clock at night after we had driven from the airport in Madrid.
The duplex apartment was very comfortable with a well-equipped kitchen and air conditioning throughout. It also has great views of the castle and the surrounding mountains. The only suggestion I would make to improve things would be to have two single beds in one of the bed rooms, to improve flexibility, for children particularly, although we did have a sofa bed downstairs that we used as our children weren't happy sleeping together in a double bed.
That, however, is a minor point and we would definitely recommend both the apartment and the area to our friends. We would also love to come back as five days was definitely not long enough to do justice to the beauty of the Gredos.
We had a great holiday. The house was lovely and homely, the grounds and views were amazing. We were two families of four and there was plenty of space everywhere for us all. It was so peaceful (until our children started running around causing chaos!). Juan was excellent - he took the children to collect the eggs on the first day and meet the animals (which was then a feature of each day following!), was incredibly helpful when we had any queries, were planning little walking trips or going out on bikes etc. - he really helped enhance our holiday experience.
The pool, table tennis, badminton and golf facilities meant there was plenty of outdoor fun to keep us all entertained. The bikes were great for a trip into Guisando. Picking and eating cherries straight from the trees was a big highlight of my trip!
The surrounding area was beautiful for little walks through the
pine forests in the mountains.
All in all we had a brilliant time, loved the house and the surrounding area and were sad to be leaving!
